Report: Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards arrested for DWI
New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards was arrested early this morning and charged with DWI on Manhattan's West Side.
Edwards, 27, was pulled over by police at 5:15 a.m. at 34th Street and 12th Avenue for having overly-tinted windows, the New York Post reported. Police administered a Breathalyzer when they smelled alcohol and Edwards tested at 0.16, twice New York's legal limit. He will be arraigned later today.
"We are very disappointed in Braylon's actions this morning," Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum said in a statement released by the team. "The Player Protect [which provides a car service for players who are partying] program is in place for our organization to prevent this situation. Braylon is aware of this program and showed poor judgment. We are reviewing the information with the league and will impose the appropriate disciplinary measures."
According to the New York Daily News, Edwards wrote in a recent blog post on GQ.com, "You can easily get caught up doing too much 'New York' - but you've got to manage it, understand your reason for being here."
Edwards was in the crime report last October for an incident in which he punched a friend of LeBron James' outside a Cleveland nightclub. He was traded by the Browns to the Jets that month. Edwards pleaded no contest to aggravated assault and was given a suspended 180-day jail sentence, fined $1,000 and placed on probation.

Baltimore Ravens offensive line coach Andy Moeller was arrested and charged Saturday with driving under the influence of alcohol. The incident is Moeller's second in four months; he is expected to plead not guilty. Moeller is the son of Gary Moeller, former football coach at the University of Michigan.
